Gardens provide students with experiences unlike any in a classroom. They are living labs, sources of food and nutrition, and islands of nature. Community involvement from the school administration, parents and neighborhood volunteers is essential to the function and sustainability of a school garden program and its inclusion into the day-to-day culture of the school.

Volunteers assist with weeding, mulching, planting, and clean-up.

Mission Statement

The mission of the Denver Public Schools is to provide all students the opportunity to achieve the knowledge and skills necessary to become contributing citizens in our diverse society. Keep watching as Denver Public Schools continues to challenge itself, reform and grow.


Denver Public Schools is committed to meeting the educational needs of every student with great schools in every neighborhood. Our goal is to provide every child in Denver with a joyful, rigorous and personalized learning experience from preschool through high school graduation. DPS is comprised of more than 200 schools, including traditional, innovation, magnet, charter and pathways schools, with a current total enrollment of more than 91,000 students. Of those, 56% of the school district’s enrollment is Hispanic, 23% is Caucasian and 14% is African-American. Additionally, 69% of our students qualify for free- and reduced-price lunches, an indicator of poverty.

Under the leadership of Superintendent Tom Boasberg and guided by the tenets of the Denver Plan 2020, DPS is among the fastest-growing urban school districts in the nation in terms of enrollment and leads all large districts in Colorado in terms of student academic growth.

Joined by our community, DPS teachers, school leaders and school-support staff crafted the strategic district plan, the Denver Plan 2020, which identifies our five key goals:

  1. Great Schools in Every Neighborhood
  2. A Foundation for Success in School
  3. Ready for College & Career
  4. Support for the Whole Child
  5. Closing the Opportunity Gap
